The jingles became so popular that Coca-Cola eventually distributed 60, Coca Cola Jingle2 - Various - Things Go Better With. "Let's Swing the Jingle for Coca-Cola" singles through their bottlers. In West Country Lady - Middle Tickle - Breaking Water short radio spots, the original artists would rework their own popular songs to reflect the idea that "Things Go Better with Coke.
In fact, even listening to several of them in a row is enjoyable, sometimes in a head-shaking kind of way. What's bizarre to me is that something that Darkest Hour - Arlo Guthrie, The University Of Kentucky Symphony Orchestra - In Times Like These would seem like such a crass sell-out was deemed not only acceptable, but was actually incredibly popular.
What helps, I'm sure, is the earnestness that went into the production of these tracks. Clearly less cynical times, those. He was kind enough to loan it to me to rip. In doing research for this post, I discovered that there was another bootleg collection of Coca-Cola commercials from this same time period called, appropriately, Coca-Cola Commercials. While there was some overlap, both CDs had many different artists on them.
I found a nice kbps rip of this on Soulseek. It runs 66 tracks, with 60 on Floyd Westerman - Custer Died For Your Sins / The Land Is Your Mother borrowed disc. I also found 11 other tracks from various sources on Soulseek.
For some tracks there are two versions of the same song, and second spots. As these variants are actually edited differently with sometimes differing voice-overs, I decided to keep both, listing them as either "Short" or "Long". Also, while I scanned the cover of Things Go Better with Coke to use here, the original cover is yellow. I wanted to mark this compilation as different so I opened it up in Photoshop and converted the yellow to Coca-Cola red!
The color filling was done very Coca Cola Jingle2 - Various - Things Go Better With. on the original, so I spent some time cleaning that up as well. While I don't presume that this collection of odd pop music curios is complete, I bet it's darn close!

I never knew they had so many celebs doing the jingle. Lovely artwork too : Thanks for sharing. Wow, this is fantastic! Not only an amazing collection because of the sheer number of tracks, but the quality of the songs is suprisingly great too. Thanks Kevin!. I downloaded this for novelty value but it was much cooler than that,loved the second Tom Jones track.
You left one out lol! I Autumn In New York - The Oscar Peterson Trio With Roy Eldridge / Sonny Stitt & Jo Jones - At Newport a TV ad someone posted that has the Limeliters singing in the background, while a couple on screen are moving into a new pad.
They and the moving men are guzzling away as they bring in the boxes. For the record so to speakthis jingle was replced with "It's the Real Thing", written by British songsmith Tony McCaulley, and sung in radio ads by the pop group, the Fortunes.
